The THING! – Nightmares For Children (And Other Stories) – Single Review

The THING! is an English winding-rock duo.

The THING!

The THING!

With plans afoot for more reveals in short order – Nightmares For Children (And Other Stories) – which came out a few hours ago is their début track. Settle back, draw the curtains, turn down the lights and join them in the thirty and a tad minutes of the song.

One is minded of Hawkwind, Enigma and Borodin all wrapped up in to one glorious package as the revolving and developing chapters circumnavigate in their cycle of despondency, extrapolated psychedelia and redactive invitation as gregorian chants, violins and distorted guitar / percussion combinations weave in and out of focus to the accompaniment of extracts of nursery rhymes.

Future Sound Cartel – Faking Music – Single Review

The English ambient-rock collective Future Sound Cartel released the single Faking Music on the 21st.

Best not to hit play if you are about to head to something requiring adrenaline as to enjoy the song to fullest extent you will need time to allow the day to continue at unhurried pace for quite some time after the conclusion of the just under four minute composition.

Harking of reel to reel tape recordings Faking Music (available on bandcamp) has the warmth that comes through analogue recording in a track that drifts lazily through the room in an ambient psychedelic combination of synthesiser, guitars, percussion and multi-vocal that leaves the listener calmly reposed in a state of subjective intuition as the brain slows down to the weaving textures that flow through the ears.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf – Tin Men – Single Review

The Belgian melancholic-rock quintet The Girl Who Cried Wolf revealed their latest single Tin Men on the 20th.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf

Even on a very sunny day Tin Men would cast a shadow over the sun as the intoxicating registry of darkness cloaks the listener in hypnotic layers of synth and guitar with scattered percussion glimpsed through the room as the seductive vocal entices the listener closer to the speakers.

There are rumours that The Girl Who Cried Wolf are planning to release an LP next year, with Tin Men pencilled in as being part of the album. The only sadness is that is now only April, so until more is uncovered Tin Men will have to serve as a taster to what is in store.

Montufar – Ghosts – Single Review

Montufar is a relatively new gazewave project from the USA.

Montufar

Centred around Victor Montufar with additional instrumentation added as and where needed. With only a couple of tracks around, I look forward to hearing more. The most recent reveal being Ghosts, that was released on the 21st (available on bandcamp).

There is a palpable sadness that drifts across the room as the combinations of synths, piano and guitar, unhurriedly, weave around each other in a graceful flow of hazy texturing whilst the dual vocals provides Ghosts with its haunting presence as the percussion provides an unexpected, though delicious, pulse to the composition.

Someday I Will Miss You – Nine Days – Single Review

The Croatian synth-weave project Someday I Will Miss You has featured regularly over the past approaching three years.

Someday I Will Miss You - Nine Days

Someday I Will Miss You

The latest track to surface – Nine Days – which was revealed earlier in the month is the lightest of texture thus far to appear, yet, rather running away in afeared countenance Someday I Will Miss You is able entice the listener back and unveil a track that becomes ever darker in temperament as it progresses through the just over four minutes construct.

As the crystal glass shatters across the room, so the refracted colour spectrum shines through the visual field and underplayed malcontent comes to the fore, resulting in the listener being encased in cloths of many colours in which they are invited to rest upon a throne to contemplate the soundtrack.
